Our Halloween Tiny Door DIY

This last May I posted about our family outing to Paris on Ponce and our discovery of Tiny Doors ATL. I thought it would be so much fun to create our own "Tiny Door" for Benjamin to enjoy, so I was thrilled when reached out and offered to make that happen! I chose the Yorktown Door because I loved the molding and "sculpted doorcap". I really wanted to decorate our tiny door with fall and Halloween decor so I searched the "Shop by Season" and "Shop by Holiday" sections. That made it super simple. Our door definitely needed a wreath and I chose this Haunting Halloween Wreath. I tend to skip over measurements and I so I was so surprised by how teeny this Little Scream Black Cat was. Not pictured above was this adorable Black Cauldron. Benjamin has loved filling it with candy corn (and then of course, eating it immediately) in the last couple of weeks. I picked out a few other "fall" related accessories for the front porch. I could not make up my mind on how to paint the front door but after a poll to my social, I decided on Robin's Egg for the front door and Camel for the trim. I love how everything turned out!
I thought Benjamin's room would be the perfect home to this whimsical installation. I was going to surprise him with it initially but then I let him help me pick the perfect location. We ended up selecting a portion of wall between his tool bench and basketball net. Heh. Because of our molding, we had to put the door up higher on the wall [so that the door would adhere flat against it]. At first I wasn't sure how to decorate because there were several inches between the carpet and door. Then I found this small toy container that fit perfectly well enough. We adhered the door with a couple of 3M foam squares - easy peasy.
Check out the adorable trick-or-treater and pumpkins we found at Michael's. They look absolutely precious with everything else. I don't know who loves this Tiny Door project more -- me or Benjamin!
This was such a simple and fun project to do with Benjamin. I love any bit of magic I can add to his childhood and this definitely fits the bill. We love to knock on his "fairy door" (even though they're always sleeping in there!). It brings so many smiles and he loves showing it off to visitors. We've already got our eyes on Christmas decorations and I'm looking forward to the tradition of changing our Tiny Door with each holiday or season.
